jean-philippe-blanchette-accompagne-avocatThe Chicoutimien Jean-Philippe Blanchette learned Wednesday the evidence held by the Crown in its Impaired driving record killing his girlfriend in August 2014.

The preliminary investigation of the man of 35 years was held before Judge Pierre Lortie, the Court of Quebec. An order banning publication was requested by Luc Tourangeau defense.

It is therefore impossible for the media to report the content of the evidence held by Jean-Sébastien Lebel, of the Crown. Only two witnesses were heard, but the content of their testimony is struck by the order banning publication.

On August 18 2014, Blanchette and his wife were on a Jeep Wrangler and head to the street Jodoin. Arriving in the sector, Blanchette, who was driving, lost control of the vehicle, which overturned.

Following the event, Blanchette was charged with dangerous driving and driving while impaired causing death of Kathleen Haché-Binette.

After spending a few days in detention, Jean-Philippe Blanchette was released. It still is, but must respect the conditions.

After the preliminary investigation, the Pierre Lortie judge quoted the accused to trial for driving while impaired causing death and dangerous driving causing death.

The parties will meet again in criminal court on 15 September to set a date for a trial by judge and jury.
